Nothing much to say about this thing but that it squirts plastic and can print for hours and hours.

Prusa I2 currently under construction. I hope to have it finished by December. I have a Rambo controller
and heat bed on order. I’m really looking forward to using this printer. I know its going to produce some
great prints.

My only functioning printer. E3D V6 w/ amplified PT100. 300x200mm bed. MKS SBase 1.3. DIY Titan extruder. 0.9 degree X and Y steppers. Enclosure is a temperature controlled and auto on/off heated enclosure. Although even w/ polycarbonate I never found I needed to turn the heaters on. So I've removed all the wiring that connected to the printer.

I'm currently building a reinforced frame for this printer and will be converting it to a single Z motor. Also have a Wilson 2 95% finished (also single Z motor). Just waiting for the closed loop belts to arrive (been 2 months already).

This is my prusa frankeinstein, each piece from different supplier and I did plenty of improvements during the four years I am working on it.
Now it runs a E3d v6 hot end with a titan extruder and an Ir Z probe.
The next improvement is a multimaterial hotend, it's a mix between a Chinese hotend and original E3d chimera pieces. The approach will be the same of the make multimaterial solution but not a more compact shape... We will see if it will work. ;)

I have a self build P3Steel XL running on a DuetWifi with a titan extruder, e3D hot endand a BLTouch like probe for bed levelling. It sits in an insulated heat chamber that’ll reach 50c from only the Heated bed at 115c.

This Christmas I plan on converting this Makerbot 5th Gen replicator into a useful CoreXY machine replacing the electronics with a DuetWifi and new hot end/extruder.

The day my LulzBot Mini was delivered!
Have since invested in an acrylic case and a Flexystruder to print with flexible filament. Have also added a Raspberry Pi to use Octoprint and LED lighting to make it much easier to see the print bed and to allow for a future remote camera upgrade.

My printer is an Alunar M505. Same as ANET A8. Most peoples would say that all the upgrades Ive made doesn't worth it and that I should just have bought a CR-10. But I very like my printer and I've learn so much in the process of pimping it. It's linked with Octoprint via a raspberry pi 3.
